The answer is simple. I've just made progress by gathering organic intel through diplomatic protocols that would be benefical to the economy of the toy collector's Otaku budget.

That's a hell of a flea

I think that this toy

I think that this toy reflects how I feel about Tamashii released a lot in general. Despite this being an excellent looking toy to me, there's just a few details that really drag down the release. I can deal with the part-swapping and misleading name, but Tamashii in particular almost never includes a stand even though they give you half the parts to do so which just seems like a way to cash in even more, and to have these web exclusives that are very hard for exporting fans to get a hold of for a reasonable price. They've done the same thing with the SH Figuarts line, SDX Gundams, and Robot Damashii figures as well.

But aside from that rant, I love that even though this figure is 1/100 scale, it's not put next to the VF100 VF-25. Perhaps some lingering hatred and bitterness? : P

High Complete

Jokingly Maybe somebody got the wrong memo: This reminds me and is in scale of a High Complete release not a High Metal. This would have been a cool reboot to the High Complete but as High Metal its misnamed.

See, the way I look at toys

See, the way I look at toys is thus: (and obviously different than most folks)

I am well aware they are silly. In general its expensive dust collecting nick nacks. Some people get Hummel figurines or sports bits, I prefer big smashy robots and big stompy monsters.

As these bits don't DO anything in general but look pretty and collect dust there is only so much I am willing to pay for them.

Now western release stuff tends to be relatively cheap, fun to putz around with, and decent looking overall.

Japanese robot toys tend to not be so much.

Ever hear the saying "You want it good, cheap, and fast? Pick any two"?

Well Japanese robot toys seem to ask the question "You want it good looking, fun to play with, or cheap? Pick ONE".

That's my problem with a lot of them, which the toy in this review brings up well. Its good looking, but its a parts former, and certainly not cheap. (Though given some of the toys many folks here buy its cheap in COMPARISON.)

Comments ...

Seems fidgety & less smooth looking compared to a version of this I had several years ago. IF I remember correctly, The version I had also had less visibly noticeable parts separation points.

Bandai shouldn’t have put the word metal in this toy & Yes I know many other “metal” toys by Bandai lacked significant metal content, so I’m not just singling this toy out.

The video is much appreciated! While text & pics are also much appreciated, Videos give better insight into a toy.

You gave an excellent review! Thanks Josh!
